my work is created with oxidized silver, mineral stones, delica seed beads, found and recycled objects. many things i think are useful can be found on the ground, in the kitchen junk drawer, and also at the local thrift store. these found materials can be anything from seeds, shells, fragments of found plastic, a mass of dryer lint, and even those squishy rubber grapes from grandma’s attic.
